From: Use of the Oxford Handicap Scale at hospital discharge to predict Glasgow Outcome Scale at 6 months in patients with traumatic brain injury

  Model 1 Model 2 Model 3
   95% CI   95% CI   95% CI
OHS OR Lower Upper OR Lower Upper OR Lower Upper
     1.0    1.0   
Minor symptoms 1.7 1.4 2.1 1.6 1.3 1.9 1.6 1.3 2.0

C statistic for the model 0.78    0.83    0.83   
  1. Model 1: OHS
  2. Model 2: model 1 plus GCS, pupil reactivity, major extra-cranial injury and age
  3. Model 3: model 2 plus CT findings (petechial haemorrhages, obliteration of the third ventricle or basal cisterns, subarachnoid bleed, midline shift, non evacuated haematoma)
